CARLOS SIMON: Fate Now Conquers 
BRAHMS: Violin Concerto
MAHLER: Symphony No. 5

The Omaha Symphony ends its season by welcoming two of the American classical music world’s most dynamic young artists. Atlanta native Carlos Simon has made a name for himself in the world of composition—his music has been called “perfectly engaging and propulsive” (The Philadelphia Enquirer), and he has been commissioned by ensembles such as The New York Philharmonic, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Philadelphia Orchestra. The Omaha Symphony performs Simon for the first time, bringing his 2020 work, Fate Now Conquers, to life. Then, emerging star Stella Chen makes her Omaha debut with Brahms’ stormy yet lyrical Violin Concerto. Finally, the orchestra performs Mahler under the baton of Maestro Ankush Kumar Bahl for the first time—the Symphony No. 5, like his other symphonies, is a tour de force, requiring an expanded orchestra. It’s a work that broadened the tonal sensibilities of the 20th century and continues to awe audiences today.
